Summary "Beau, crippled and almost blinded by a terrible accident, is sent to recover in the South of France. Here, it is hoped, the clear blue sea and the influence of his indomitable Aunt Mimi will heal his damaged body and revive his spirit. When Lelee, the wild daughter of a Provencal smuggler, bursts from the sea it becomes a summer of diving, glorious food, hidden treasure, smuggling and Jacques Cousteau. The summer of the girl from the sea." -- BOOK JACKET
